A modern retelling that is sure to please even the most demanding of fans, Kill The Minotaur is a fresh take on an old tale that promises readers an epic experience with each turn of the page.
“Athens lost the war to Crete. Now, they pay tribute to King Minos by sacrificing their best citizens to his unearthly labyrinth. Conspirators believe Theseus can be the hero they need to end the mad king’s bloody reign…but no one on this world has ever encountered anything like the savage minotaur. CHRIS PASETTO, CHRISTIAN CANTAMESSA (Red Dead Redemption) and LUKAS KETNER (WITCH DOCTOR) reinvent the most fearsome beast of all with this horrific tale of heroism. Each issue features 30 pages of story!”
Typically, comics like this don’t appeal to me as I don’t really like the retellings of classic stories, or, for that matter, Historical Fiction. But, with a title like Kill The Minotaur, I figured that I would give this one a chance and peer at some of the pages. After glimpsing through some of the book’s early pages, I was convinced that it was going to be good. In short, Kill The Minotaur #1 is a fantastic comic.
Written by Christian Cantamessa and Chris Pasetto, Kill The Minotaur #1 reads like a well-written novel, as one of the books obvious strengths is its dialogue work. Theseus speaks and acts uniquely and honestly. No cardboard cutouts here folks.
Pick this one up.
